Dead Babies and Seaside Towns


What a title. It engages and disgusts at the same time in our opinion.

We jumped at the chance to package this for our regular client Unbound. As their Associate Art Director, Mark read the book (as he always does) and came up with a simple way of reflecting the story of surrogacy, infertility and finally happiness in this lead non-fiction title.

Hand drawn watercolour waves start choppy and angry, and gradually change to a calm, blue and inviting line at the base of the cover, allowing the type to hide behind the waves.
